Artist Info


In its 11th year as a multi-city annual festival, Red Baraat Festival of Colors is an immersive celebration through music, visuals and dance. Bringing together what NPR has called “the best party band in years,” with a montage of classic Bollywood visuals, a showcase of exceptional South Asian artists, Red Baraat celebrates the Indian holiday, Holi, through communal revelry.

Traditionally, Holi is marked by public gatherings of families and strangers sharing songs, dance, and the exchange of ‘colors’. It signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and for many, a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships.

Red Baraat Festival of Colors debuted in 2012 at a sold out Le Poisson Rouge in New York City and then expanded to over a dozen cities in the United States. Bandleader and dhol player, Sunny Jain, curates a night of music highlighting the South Asian Diaspora through a diverse range of styles. Past festivals included DJ Rekha, Vidya Vox, Falu, Heems (Das Racist/Swet Shop Boys), Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi (a film by the late, award-winning filmmaker, Prashant Bhargava, with score by Grammy-nominated composer, Vijay Iyer), Vidya Vox and so many more.
